I am a runner ( marathon and half marathons) and I dont get sugar lows but instead I get highs. However, post run this morning my sugar was 125...woohoo ! Instead of the cliff shots I would recommend chocolate #9 energy gel. http://www.chocolateenergygel.com/
•is sweetened only with organic agave.
•contains no refined sugar or other HIGH glycemic index sweeteners.
•has been – tested and certified – as a “LOW” glycemic index (GI) item.
•Chocolate #9 LOW GI gel reduces the negative effect of repetitive insulin “spiking” during sustained exercise.
•won’t cause a sugar high or a sugar low – bonk.
•is an excellent energy choice for endurance athletes.
•is suitable for most diabetics – and used by Team Type 1.
•is an excellent choice for those not wanting to eat refined sugar.
•is vegan, low fat and gluten free.
•contains no synthetics – no unpleasant aftertastes – tastes great.
•contains no “mystery” ingredients, colorings, or preservatives.
•is easy on the stomach.
•best of all — Chocolate #9 tastes great.
I use chocolate #9 on my long runs and love it !
